Attorney contributor for The Legal Herald, Jeff Gibson shared the following information for persons injured in truck accidents and those looking for more information from a commercial truck accident lawyer:

“When a person’s negligence injures a family member via a truck crash, it’s understandable for victims and their loved ones to want to seek justice. They did nothing to put themselves in such a painful situation – why should they be left to put the pieces back together without help?

By pursuing an auto accident lawsuit, those hurt by the negligence of another can finally feel that justice has been served. Not only this, through the same legal proceeding, they can also recover a compensation for damages resulting from the incident. These can include:

  • Physical suffering
  • Emotional trauma
  • Loss of income
  • Surgery and hospitalization costs
  • Therapy procedures
  • … and more

Why should victims file a lawsuit and not an insurance claim? This is a common question, as most people believe that insurance companies will pay for all damages. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case.

Most insurance policies have a limit, and when this payout limit is reached, the victims stop receiving benefits. When this happens, a lawsuit may be the only way for those victimized by negligence to receive the compensation that will allow them to recover fully.

Each state has a different statutes of limitation with regards to filing a truck accident lawsuit, so those injured in tractor-trailer accidents should consult their case with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.”
